The nicknamed Number 11 (11号) intern is back with the latest scoops on the new contents Blue Version is getting with an August 8th update. Starting with the new songs, we have a blend of both old and new tunes to gawk at, with that one Vocaloid track lighting up some deja-vu-related memories from the latest rounds of arcade leaks of past July's end...

It's also worth mentioning that this update will relocate the Youtube Theme Song Variety track to the J-Pop genre.

Blue ver. Dojo Ranking Main Courses (up to 10-Dan)
Also in high rumor talk in the past few days was the eventual implementation of Blue Version's main Dojo Ranking courses with its next arcade... and sure enough, today's blog entry confirms it so! The feature is also being introduced in the blog entry by Taiko Team leader Etou (エトウ), nonetheless.

In a nutshell, the latest main rounds of the skill-oriented feature will have its entries to be based on Yellow Version's main courses, only being updated with some of Blue Version's song additions. As usual, we also get a semi-complete rundown of the featured songs in picture form, up to the aforementioned 10-Dan course.

With the Yellow Version main courses graduating soon, the implementation of its hardest trials as Dojo Ranking Gaiden trials is also being worked on for a future update.

Performance Battle Mode Update: More Special Attacks and Limited Courses

Etou's cameo in today's blog entry is also here to introduce some new elements for Blue Version's Performance Battle mode, starting with the implementation of new special attacks for Amitie, the mode's heroine. Together with her default lightning-based special attack, she can now be equipped with different elemental magic for new effects, such as the case of the Earth spell displayed below.

In order to use the new special attacks, players will have to obtain them in the Performance Battle mode in form of random chest drops that may be dropped by the defeated enemies while playing.

Each special attack has to be unlocked by collecting a fixed amount of Magic Stones, collectable as random chest drops and appearing like this:

Last but not least, the Taiko Team is planning some time-limited scenarios for the Performance Battle mode! The first of those will have players face off against the first 3DS Taiko game's main antagonist: the evil clown Maou. Only players who have gained access to the 2nd stage will be able to join the event, so make your progress if you're behind!
